The hot chocolate beverage in Dutch rations

Post by SNiiP3R » Sun Oct 02, 2016 8:01 am

It's by far the best hot chocolate I've ever had. I would love to know who makes it, maybe it's available in stores in Europe? :roll:

I've never had Dutch cocoa before but! I think these links may help what you are looking for.
Apparently Dutch Cocoa powder is processed in a different fashion, resulting in a different taste as seen here:
http://www.seriouseats.com/2014/08/diff ... itute.html.

More info from Wikipedia:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dutch_process_chocolate


You can probably some find it at your local grocery store or international market. If those don't help, I have found some online stores that sell Dutch process cocoa powder!

King Arthor Flour sells 3 types of Dutch Process cocoa:

1.)Bensdorp:http://www.kingarthurflour.com/shop/ite ... ocoa-16-oz

2.)Double Dutch dark:http://www.kingarthurflour.com/shop/ite ... ocoa-16-oz

3.)Cocoa rouge dutch: http://www.kingarthurflour.com/shop/ite ... cess-cocoa

But King Arthur isn't the only one who sells this powder delicacy:https://www.google.com/search?q=dutch+p ... a&tbm=shop

I also found a couple recipes for dutch style hot chocolate

NYT recipe:http://cooking.nytimes.com/recipes/5585 ... -chocolate

Cooking Blog recipe:https://www.cookiesandclogs.com/dutch-h ... te-recipe/

I hope this helps, now i'm in the mood for some hot chocolate :P

From what I've seen in other rations it's mostly cocoa with water. The dutch ones are a combination of instant milk with cocoa, that's why there's so much more powder for it.

I got 20 of those hot chocolate packages for a seller and now at least i know what components are in it.

Sugar, Low-fat milkpowder, 14% low-fat chocolat powder, buttermilkpowder, salt.

Nutritional Data per 100g:
Calories: 370kcal, 2g Fat, 1g saturated Fat, Carbohydrates: 68g, of which sugar: 67, Protein: 17g, Salt: 1g

now i know why it tastes so good, it is mostly sugar :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

i also bought 2 cans of hot chocolate powder that has similar values, will give it a try and let you guys know.

Have you all tried Mexican hot chocolate?

Abuleta is one brand

Different but also very good, and some times spicy
